    Service attentive & responsive to requests. Lobster crepe was delicately sauced with lobster chunks, enough to share tastes. Filet of sole was fresh and generously portioned. View of the San Francisco Bay-an added plus.

    Amazing food....and service was outstanding! However....The six of us sat next to a table with very loud "older" patrons for quite sometime but they finally left. Rest of the evening was fantastic!! We've been going to this amazing restaurant for over 30 years...especially for special occasions.....when we are in the Marin area! It's a "must go" for anyone in SF or Marin areas! It's in the beautiful and quaint little town of Tiburon!

    What a wonderful find. We have eaten in Tiburon several times, but because this restaurant is a bit off the downtown rush, we somehow have missed it. Food was excellent, view unbelievable, and service was very good. Artichoke appetizer was splendid while the main courses were perfect. We can't wait to return.

    Both the Brunch items that consisted of French Toast and an omelet were tasteless and the presentation/plating of each entree was unappealing. The mini mini muffins too were plated poorly and tasteless. The scant amount of fruit ( 2 cubed pieces of pineapple with 4-5 cube pieces of watermelon) did not appear to be fresh nor were they plated in a visually appealing manner.

    Such an excellent way to spend a Sunday. We wanted to escape the heat of Sacramento, so we decided to go to the beautiful city of Tiburon, and have brunch. The Caprice was extemely helpful in accomodating us with a change of reservations from 1:15 to 11:30. From the moment we arrived it was shear enjoyment. There is valet parking and the man handling the parking was plesant and greeted was with a friendly smile and welcomed us to the Caprice. We had a lovely window seat to view all of the beautiful sail boats out for the day. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and assisted us with choices from the menu. I ordered the crab bendict and my husband had the corn beef hash with poached eggs. Both were excellent choices. We will be back.

    Initially, I thought the service was slow in order to allow us to enjoy our glass of champagne. When the glass was almost empty, the waiter returned and asked us if we wanted to order. The food took a long time, too. The check was presented with an 18% gratuity added to the bill. There were 3 of us. It's a great view and quiet. The interior is non-descriptive.

    I took my family to The Caprice last night and we built another outstanding memory there. Our waiter, Jeff, happen to have his family seated close by celebrating his wife's birthday. We all broke into song congratulating her in the most natural, easy way because it felt right. When the food is so good and the service is so good and you've got the Bay with a view of both bridges and Angel Island right outside your window you have to have a good time. If you can't relax with all of that abundance surrounding you, it's your fault. We loved it and we know that you will too. Enjoy!!!!

    The first thing is the view. on a beautiful day you see the sail boats passing by with the golden gate bridge in the background, very romantic and inspiring. The food is delicious, came here for brunch, the shrimp pesto was very tasty and the clam chowder was absolutely incredible. Almost every table was occupied and I understand why, because the food and the view is worth it to spend to some time here.

    I surprised my girlfriend and took her to The Caprice for our anniversary and my expectations were surpassed! The view, alone, was amazing, but what really sold me was the customer service and their delicious cuisine. I parked a couple blocks away, but after finding the valet, he offered me a closer spot free of charge! The hostess and our waiter, Jeff, were very friendly and set us up with the best seat in the house! For an entree we had the crispy calamari and split the Caesar salad, both were great! I had the filet mignon with green beans and potato gratin for dinner. The filet was cooked to perfection and the gratin was superb! Make sure to try the Chocolate trip for dessert! Awesome dining experience, I'll definitely be coming back.

    What a surprise -- we hadn't been to The Caprice for many years! The food was really fantastic, the best we've had in a long time. My filet mignon was to die for! Service was excellent too, sometimes a little slow. And of course the view of the city and Golden Gate bridge were wonderful. We're anxious to return very soon.

    Took out of town friends to A Caprice for brunch - we were late, as their plane was late arriving at SFO. The folks at the restaurant were extremely nice and accommodating about it (we were really too late for brunch). The view was outstanding, and it was fun to watch the people fishing on the little pier next to the restaurant. The food was just OK - not bad, but certainly nothing to write home about. That being said, I would go back if I had other people who had never been to the Bay Area.

    I was very pleasantly surprised at the service at this restaurant. The food was delicious but the service was fantastic. The art of service is always one of those things that I admire, being able to silently create an experience of being taken care of without calling too much attention to yourself. Our server was just that. He gave us everything we needed before we even noticed we needed it. It was a quaint restaurant, right over the water over looking the Golden Gate Bridge and the lights of San Francisco. I had the scallops which are quite a difficult dish to do, creamy texture with a seared almost caramelized on the edges. I would definitely dine here again for a romantic evening away from the rush of the city.
